Great work, Sarthak. I'm especially impressed by the level of research you've put into this. I Googled "Ah’You’wa’eghs" and was pleasantly surprised to find everything you say about him seems to be true. He was born in 1794 so would've been around 18 years old at the beginning of the war.(https://tce-live2.s3.amazonaws.com/media/studyguides/queenston-eng.pdf)

Excellent work, really.

Thanks! Appreciate the comments. And yes the chief did exist and aided Norton many times during the war of 1812. It was his support that made a good portion of the Iroquois warriors fight for the British before the Iroquois decided on neutrality later on

The only reason I briefly doubted was because because Ah’You’wa’eghs sounds a bit like a strong Scottish accent saying "are you what eggs?"

I was just having a look at Maine's borders and population density, by the way. Looks like the Mainish(?) population Maine-ly (sorry) hugs the coastline.

Maine probably wouldn't lose all that much population if the Canadian-American border just extended in a straight line from the Vermont border...

I (of course) would prefer to see the watershed boundary proposed by the British prior to Webster-Ashburton... to this day, the Maine population is concentrated along the coast, with small clusters along the St John and the (current) American/Canadian border (see map...) so that border would also help explain population distribution down to this day with very little change.
Also, maybe throw in the "New Ireland" colony (which was partly organized by the Brits in the WO1812 in OTL) east of the Penobscot...

Are we talking about the ones proposed here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Webst...edia/File:Webster-Ashburton_treaty_map-fr.svg ?

If so, I find that jagged mess an 'orrendous eyesore. 😉

What is this Maine you speak of? I only know of North Massachusetts and New Ireland ;)
 
It wouldn't surprise me if this resulted in a much more militant USA who could even more easily wipe the floor with the Mexicans.
I could easily see a trans-Atlantic cold war develop over this if the USA gets beaten up badly enough, have them team up with the French after the Napoleonic wars against the British Empire.
Or one that rushes into war with Mexico and gets beaten badly through going off half clocked or fails to integrate texas which stays independent

This would be a fresh idea, having the US rush into a war so unprepared, even the clusterfuck that Mexico is in this period beats them.

The war of 1812 was the impetus for the expansion of National army and proper officer training. A reactionary move asserting state rights And rejecting national army. Leaving federal government only charge of navy.
